Examine a problem/solution multiple times, over time, as a matter of course. Use the result of your discussion as new information to add into a new discussion of the same topic. Leave time between your discussion/analysis sessions. Let your subconscious work on the problem while you live out your life. Bring more and different perspectives into each new iteration of analysis.
Make your outcome stronger by testing its mettle in more and different ways, using the stressor of time.
What comes out of your first discussion [or test or exploration] may yield important information that you can use from the beginning if you examine the topic again. The experiences you have between discussion/analysis sessions may be invaluable to reaching the most productive conclusion possible.
When GroundWork develops applications, we know we aren’t going to figure it out all at once. Something will slip through. So we build in time to intentionally leave something on the table and forget about it. Then we revisit it with new minds (though perhaps the same people). You don’t necessarily need more perspectives and people; time is a terrific variable.
You’ll end up with more complete solutions which accommodate more issues than if you used less rigor and less time.
For GroundWork, this is the difference between applications which structurally solve problems or are patchwork fixes to the problems of the day.
